Toy Machine X Val-Surf Demo

The one you missed with weak excuses like "I don't live there."
Leo's plan was to drive straight from Woodward West to the Pedlow Park on his motorbike.
Speaking of skateparks, watch J-Lay and Dan-Lu fuck one up. <-----
Start off the day early with a breakfast of champions.
Dan-Lu missed breakfast.
Prepping for battle with bugs.
Time to load up the pick-up and get down to LA.
We got there at the same time as the Tempsters, in shorts, and sieg heiling, er, hi-fiving everyone.
The demo started without fanfare. It was 100+ degrees out there. I was talking with the guys, and we all thought that normally this place would be great, good bowls, fun street obstacles. Go check it out if you are in the area. I don't know about the pad situation, it is a fenced-off park.
Ed kept trying impossible nose bash on this tranny thing...
Leo (and Collin too) were gapping up to this 50-50 thing, that you had to gap-out of over a small two-block to land.
Josh was there and happy!
Need some water bro? Sinclair was on the team manager tip, taking photos and getting waters keeping the demo flowing like a well-oiled machine.
I didn't even see this go down, but knowing Leo this was an ollie from flat to front blunt.
The Grif Dog was there, check him on Instagram...
See Collin and J-Lay in 5 sequences at
Who let their dad onto the course? Oh, that's Ed on trick two of his combo line.
J Harms blazed back lips across this whole block at break-neck speeds.
Collin Provost front blunts and Leo is in the background back tailing, and even further back, kids are not watching.
Matt B gets warpy, back 180 nosegrind across and into the bank...
You had to stop and hydrate every once in a while, yeah, that's Billy Marks.
Billy wondering where he can do a kickflip Roast Beef, Grant about to unleash his fury on the course, and J-Lay getting some much needed hydration.
Your guess is as good as mine.
Your Minister of Propaganda, Kevin Barnett.
J-Lay was doing manual tricks on the top block, totally disregarding the fact that he had to ollie over a long block and gap out over one to do it.
Billy signs for a fan.
"Sinclair, I need some privacy out here in public please."
The Tempster shut down the demo (mostly because everyone was already done, and Ed took too long to pull this) with a over the hip to nose blunt slide.
The kids were semi-impressed.
The new faces of Toy Machine, Lutheran and Provost, handling it.
Ed announced that there would be a board toss, two get thrown into the pit to be fought over like wild animals, and two get given to the kids with the worst looking boards. We all get to see the carnage of a board toss, and we also get to give some boards out fairly to the most needy. A win-win situation.
A Loyal Pawn who wasn't afraid to drive to see his Overlord.
Josh, Ed, and Matt took care of the product distro.
The pit of carnage.
If you were at the demo, write a comment below and let us know how you liked it.
Another satisfied customer.
Product toss winners!
The general milieu after the demo.
Josh gives his blessing to a child's board.
J-Lay tries to mack on an 8 year old girl.
A Toy Tat!
I didn't get the homie's name.
Board toss survivor gets his booty signed.
Yet another satisfied customer.
Turtle-boys get drawn on green shirts.
"Are you sure she was 21?"
Leo got him one last time...
Posted July 24th, 2011 by Billy Marks was there, he gets married soon.
where the fuck is the trapasso coverage?!
Posted By: ho-down on July 24th, 2011 at 01:04PM PST
Trapasso decided not to show up.
Posted By: ed on July 24th, 2011 at 01:13PM PST

Ed must have had a really weird expression if he had to edit a new face on himself. Let\'s see the normal picture!

He just didn\'t show up or did was he busy?

I get the feeling the kid in the green shirt doesn\'t like pictures.
Posted By: john on July 24th, 2011 at 01:56PM PST
Or was he busy*
I sound like a fucking redneck
Posted By: john on July 24th, 2011 at 01:58PM PST

really sick demo it was sick getting to meet the whole team
got my brainwash dvd signed by everyone and had a 30 min conversation with austin it made it better talking to great pro
Posted By: sandro on July 24th, 2011 at 09:44PM PST
DAmn looks like it went well. Minus Trapasso not being there nor Diego but Diego doesn't even live in the states so that's understandable. So whats Trapasso's excuse??

Anyways I love breakfast.Dan must of been really tired?
CP and Leo Busting and the kids don't even care. Seems like all kids want an care about these days is free product.

I wish every loyal pawn commented. There would be a shit load of comments.

Lol at Jlay busting a Mack on the little girl! Although I doubt he really was...Jlay drives a Lexus? I drive a 2009 Toyota Yaris. What's up with that Ed photo covering Ed's face?
Posted By: josiah on July 24th, 2011 at 10:44PM PST
I would love to get stoned with the whole Toy crew.
Posted By: josiah on July 24th, 2011 at 10:46PM PST
Dan "I Can't believe I ate the whole thing" Lu

Good point. What the hell. He isn't blond anymore?

Is Kevin drinking hot ass coffee in hot ass heat?

"Who let their dad on the course?"
The shorts are convincing.

What shoes is our Overlord wearing? That missed impossible photo is pretty reminiscent of some classic Ed. The hightops with the ollie rubber protection stuff shoes. More Ollie Norths!
Somebody lay a trashcan down,nosebawnk.

I guess Billy is pissed at Alex Olson,then again, he does like to play with Berra in his park. So it makes sense. So 100 degree heat. Johnny and Billy have beanies? Black beanies too. Holy fuck. It was Low 70's in the city, and I was all taking my shirt off and shit. I would have been goddamn naked and not giving a shit in 100 degree heat.

MOP. not filming in HD. C'mon mannnnnnnnnn 2011

Jlay picks up 8 year old chicks,trying to top Brian Patch and Steve Olson.
Kevin gets flashed some flat 6 year old titties.

That kid was mall grabbing and drninking energy drink. woops.

Sandro. Whole team? Diego, and Traitor Trapasso.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on July 24th, 2011 at 10:48PM PST
Haha,Josiah. You can tell ed to Milk it.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on July 24th, 2011 at 10:49PM PST
Jgonsalez: well austin told me diego has visa problems so hes stuck in spain, jordan taylore messed up his hamstring, and he said trapasso was supposed to be there but never showed up which is gay

I would kill for low 70's, I'm having a heat wave over here. 90's everyday, it's kinda hard to get out and skate.
Posted By: john on July 25th, 2011 at 09:30AM PST
Thanks for the low down,sandro.

John,I guess you could cut some jeans into shorts. Then be bald and have no shirt like some Jason Dill shit. Or wear an SF giants hat like BA. Then do push ups on the curb outside your house.

Hey Jgonz hows life?
I'm stoked I just won a Billy Mark's deck for 16 bucks including tax. The only problem is that it's 7.5 and I'm like 6 feet tall and usually skate 8.25 so it should be interesting..

Jlay and Dan made that park look so fun. Good job!
Posted By: josiah on July 25th, 2011 at 08:44PM PST
How do you win something you have to pay 16 dollars for?
isn't billy like 5'6?
Well, Louie Barletta s till shreds on 7.5s. So. Have fun.

Hey Josiah, watch some PJ Ladd footy and then think about how he rides about that size. mind boggling

I got the Worm of Death deck for 11 bucks
Posted By: lunch on July 26th, 2011 at 01:11PM PST

Posted By: colin on July 26th, 2011 at 11:32PM PST
congratulations to billy*
Posted By: colin on July 26th, 2011 at 11:34PM PST
Trapasso doesn't need an excuse for not showing up so why should I?
Posted By: Roma Chilladue on July 27th, 2011 at 11:45AM PST
Ed do you ever get freaked out that some random person has a tat of your art work?
